Donations policy

The donations policy of the Queensland Greens, including information about the legal requirements of disclosure at both the state and Commonwealth level.

To uphold public transparency of the Party's sources of funding, the names of donors and amounts donated during the previous twelve months are disclosed on this website if the total of their respective donations equal $1,000 or more. This donor list is updated quarterly. The first $1,500 contributed during a financial year to a political party in Australia, including membership fees, is tax deductible.

In making a donation to The Queensland Greens Inc. you are confirming that:

  • you accept that your name and the total amount of your donations during the last twelve months will be included on our public donor list should the donations accepted by the Party from you during this period total $1,000 or more, and
  • you have every reason to believe that your donation will not give rise to public criticism of the Party's integrity and that our acceptance of the donation will not be contrary to the Party's internal donations policy.

Australian Federal law requires all donations to a political party totalling $11,200 or more in a financial year to be declared by both the donor and the recipient annually (click here for AEC disclosure form).

Queensland State law requires all donations to a political party totalling $1,000 or more to be declared by both the donor and the recipient every six months (click here for ECQ disclosure form). 

If you are required to disclose your donation, please forward the disclosure form by post to the relevant electoral commission as shown on the form.

The information given on this page is subject to change.
